I'm not sure which version mine is. It's off a vhs I bought years ago. I have a copy I recorded off of TCM a couple of months ago that looks a little better than this one but I don't think I can post it.

That's the way I usually play it. Ain't it the way it works though? Record a movie off of TCM and your recording will look better than a copy on vhs bought in a store. But there's that damn watermark!

The watermarks or logos can be covered up using AviSynth and VirtualDub.

Do those change the rights status too?

I would think so because if the logo is obscured then the trademark holder can't claim infringement on something that isn't there. Just my opinion of course.

You think maybe that's why they call it a watermark? Because some company weeweed on a movie?

Most probable. We in Arizona call it a "bug" but water mark is good too.

Thanks for responding. So three of them made it, that's great. And they're good movies too. I'm not going to ask what kept you away so long because it's none of my business, but I hope it was nothing serious. Glad to see you back. I'll get to work on those right away.

I've run into that problem with other websites. The simplest way to deal with it is to say the heck with it and go do something else. If you have to fight with it to get it to do what it's supposed to do, then you're not having any fun.

Hi Guyzilla ! Sometimes to get what we want we have to fight for it for a time . However ,no need to fight forever about something never getting anywhere worthwhile . I'll keep trying with deadvids because I saw it's a good site and I saw they are friends .
